You can choose to import a contact list by uploading the list from either your desktop or from an FTP site. The import feature is available on the Contact Lists index page. Click the Import icon from the Actions column to open the Import List dialog box.
On the Import List dialog box, you can choose from the following options to import contacts:
- File Import: This option enables you to choose a file from your computer to upload contacts to a list. You can upload a file of size up to 150 MB. To learn more, see Using File Import.
- FTP Import: This option enables you to upload contacts to a list using our FTP server. To use this option, you must first set up the FTP imports on the Connections page. There is no file size limit for FTP upload. To learn more, see Using FTP Import.
- Automated Import: This option enables you to automate your FTP import. You specify the settings and outline the field mappings for the contact file you plan on import. The automated process scans the specified FTP file path and checks to see if there is a file in that location. If a file is found, the contacts from the file are imported into your selected list. To learn more, see Using Automated Imports.
